Still Time

Still hesitant to go back to timetabled college life next week. I’m always hesitant after time of a far less scheduled, far more restful routine. Hesitant because the busyness of college appears often to take away time for ‘fun’ things. Yet as Fr Simon reminded those with me in the 10:45 service in St Michaels this morning, there is time. Time to rest, to be still, to be joyous in other ways. So I will remember to look for it. To stop worrying and remember that even in time of study or work, there is so much else too. Still time on the weekend to stroll through familiar fields even though they aren’t fancy parks, still time to spend at least an hour of an evening with William Shakespeare, J K Rowling and Brenda Ueland, and still time in those precious moments to visit dear loved ones.

I’m still hesitant. But there’s still time. So I don’t need to be. Perhaps reluctant is a better word… 🙂
